BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - The Bangor Area Chamber of Commerce held a webinar today for employers about what to do when an employee tests positive for COVID-19.

Dr. James Jarvis of Northern Light Health answered questions from viewers.

Given the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases, it’s more important than ever that business owners know how to handle a positive case in an employee.

The webinar included clarification on some of the guidelines on masks, testing, quarantine, and more.

Dr. Jarvis also answered questions about being in close contact with someone who tested positive and degrees of separation between exposure.

If you have questions about COVID-19, you can call 211 for the state helpline.

You can find a recording of the full webinar on the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce Facebook page.
